Distinguished alumna honors faculty with scholarship
Ariane Kirkpatrick established the Kathy Baka Inspiration Scholarship in a campus event on Nov. 17, 2021 among family, friends and College representatives. The scholarship honors history professor Kathy Baka, whose passion for education has supported countless students. Kirkpatrick created the scholarship to recognize Baka’s impact on her life. “This is a professor who took a chance and an extra care with me,” Kirkpatrick said. “She showed me just how important it is to make sure I was getting out what I was trying to put in.”
During the campus event, Kirkpatrick also was honored with the Tri-C Distinguished Alumni Award. She presented her contribution to create a scholarship that would continue to impact the lives of Tri-C students. Kirkpatrick is a 1990 graduate, a Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses graduate, and owner/president of the AKA Team. The successful entrepreneur serves on the College's WCED Board of Visitors.
